Due to booking error, we had the opportunity to stay in two condo in this building. The floor plans are mirror image of each other. One is on the 8th floor, on is on the 12th floor. This review is for unit 8a. We stay in this beautiful condo in last week (Oct 2013). It's a 4-bedroom 4 bathroom condo and it's very spacious. There are wraparound balconies. The exterior walls are all sliding floor to ceiling glass doors and when they are all opened you are like connected to the outdoor. The view is amazing. The ocean is right in front of you without anything blocking you. The breeze cools the place really well. We didn't turn the a/c on in the living room at all, and only turn the bedrooms a/c on for a couple of nights, even though I'm sure it will be fine without a/c on. The kitchen is huge and you can prepare your food. The building is very secured and the staff is amazing, and very friendly. The pool is very big and we enjoyed lounging by the pool, read a book, go for a dip now and then. It's very relaxing. If you like to swim in the ocean, just step outside the gate and there you are. The property has designated lounge chairs and umbrella for you to use. There are also no vendors to bother you which is a big plus. The location is great too. Few $ taxi ride and you will be in old town or romantic zone. It's also walking distant to a supermarket, and slightly farther there is a walmart, sams club and a decent mall. The owner Chris and the manager Oswaldo are both very nice and accommodating. I asked if they have any champagne glasses in the condo and they bought 3 set (12 glasses) for us to use. They were also flexible with my early check in and late check out requests. Since it was low season and there were no customers immediately before and after our stay, they were ok with that which made life much easier. Overall it's a wonderful experience.

We (party of 8) stayed at this beautiful apartment during 9 nights earlier in august. The first thing that hits you when you enter the apartment is the view of the ocean stretching across Bahia de Banderas as well as the Malecon which is downtown. You really need to sit down and let it sink in. I stayed a handful of times past midnight out on the terrace sipping a glass of wine, hearing the waves crash on the beach and looking at the flickering lights from the buildings downtown. This comment is from someone who's been to PV numerous times during the past 20 years and is by far no stranger to the area. The apartment is located on the 8th floor of the 3rd tower of the Peninsula which I believe has the best view of any of the three Peninsula towers. The apartment is very well maintained and decorated, which gives it a "homey" feeling to it unlike other rentals which have scattered furniture here and there. The Peninsula towers are also a very short walking distance from a small shopping center at the entrance of the towers, where you can go and enjoy a cup of Starbucks coffee or have some cocktails and late lunch/dinner at a place called De Santos. Downtown is a 5-10 minute cab ride from the Peninsula, same as the Marina. The Peninsula has a very large pool. Excellent security on premises, did not have an issue with my three kids (8 thru 12) inspecting the grounds by themselves. During our stay, the place was overall very quiet and relaxing. Chris, the owner, was exceptionally attentive and responsive to the multiple emails sent to him. I would only complain about not having a coffee grinder on hand although I recall Chris saying there was one available...probably did not look well enough...
Very much look forward on going back in the near future.
Thanks for the kind words! I, too, have to sit and soak in the view whenever I arrive. I’ll make sure we have two coffee grinders on your next trip! :-)
“Excellent Vacation and amazing View!”

We had 8 people stay at this condo and it was perfect! Everyone had a blast from the moment we walked in the door and saw the incredible view. The owner of the unit provided lots of information about the condo prior to arrival and we very prompt at responding to any questions on the condo. The information he provided on the listing was all accurate as well. The wireless internet and free calls to the us was a really great perk too. The property manager that met us when we arrived was very helpful. He knew the condo very well and provided lots of great suggestions for our vacation in PV. We also had a maid that came every 2 days and she went above and beyond our expectations for cleaning the condo! We would all go back in a heart beat and had an amazing time! I would highly recommend to any friends or family.
